Virginia: New Muslim Brotherhood Umbrella Group Holds Inaugural Banquet

This is the same Newly Formed Muslim (Brotherhood) Coalition that Seeks Greater Clout in U.S. Elections.

Participating organizations include high-profile groups that have been dogged by controversy, such as the Muslim American Society (MAS), founded by Muslim Brotherhood members, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which was named by the Justice Department in 2007 as “unindicted co-conspirators” in its case against the Holy Land Foundation in Texas, subsequently found guilty of raising money for Hamas.

The latest via the Brotherhood’s U.S. newspaper, New Umbrella Group Holds Inaugural Banquet.

The United States Council of Muslim Organization (USCMO) held its inaugural banquet at the Hilton In Crystal City, VA on June 10, 2014. The founding organizations had announced the formation of the umbrella council in March 2014; the banquet was the official introduction for the Muslim community to a platform that promises to open effective communication between Muslim organizations in America and build a national vision.

About 250 guests of the member organizations, leaders and imams of masajid, elected and government officials, dignitaries, civic and interfaith partners attended the banquet. Amongst them were Congressman Andre Carson, Congressman Keith Ellison, and Judge Hassan El Amin who also spoke on stage.

Zahra Billoo, the Executive Director CAlR-San Francisco and Dr. Altaf Hussain, Professor at Howard University emceed the event.

Oussama Jammal, the secretary general of the council introduced the mission of the council to the audience: bringing American Muslim organizations together.

Other speakers included Dr. Osama Abu-Irshaid, Nihad Awad, Naeem Baig, Mazen Mokhtar, Khalil Meek, Imam Delawar Hussein, Dr Lynne Muhammad and W.D. Mohammed II.

It was a who’s who of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. Search the archives to read details on any of these nefarious individuals or groups.

The Mosque Cares and the Nation’s Mosque were well represented at the banquet.

The keynote address was given by Dr Ihsan Bagby, of the University of Kentucky, who took the audience on a short sojourn through the history of American Muslims starting from the early Africans who were forcibly brought by slave traders to early immigrants to the present. He traced the history of other umbrella organizations that had formed and pointed out the reasons of their demise, urging the council to learn from their mistakes.

Imam Omar Suleiman represented the younger generation of leaders and spoke about what diversity and race relations means to his generation. He expressed great hope for the growth of the council.

The latest organizations to join the council are the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California, United Muslim Relief, VA and the Islamic Center of Wheaton, IL.

Membership application forms for non-profot organizations are now available on the USCMO website. The dues for voting member annual dues are $3,500 and associate member annual dues are $1,000.

U.S. dollars flow to fund jihad

Flow through Muslims living in the U.S. via U.S. dollars flow to fund jihad.

Some of Africa’s most notorious jihad groups, such as Boko Haram and al-Shabaab, are benefiting from an elaborate, international funding network, including large sums of money flowing from the United States.

MoneyJihad.com founder, Terror Finance Blog analyst and writer A. D. Kendall says Somalis residing in the United States, for example, are a major source of al-Shabaab’s financing.

“First and foremost, the Somalis contribute through remittances and hawala. Somalis wire money home, which is often processed by Dahabshiil, a business that routinely pays off al-Shabaab,” Kendall told WND. “Dahabshiil’s involvement in financing terrorism is the reason why Barclays attempted to end its business relationship with Dahabshiil.”

Barclay’s moved to shut down its connections with Dahabshiil because of numerous reports of money transfers from Somalis in the U.S., Canada and Europe to al-Shabaab through the Dubai-based company.

Kendall adds that American Somalis also support jihad through direct fundraising.

“There’s international zakat for the mujahideen,” Kendall said. “Somali activists like Amina Farah Ali in Minnesota or Basaaly Moalin in California raise money from their communities for jihad and send it to al-Shabaab.”

Amina Farah Ali, in fact, was convicted in federal court for funneling money to al-Shabaab.

Moalin was also sentenced to 18 years in prison for “providing material support to al-Shabaab.”

Kendall further points to Somali media that openly report direct contributions from American Somalis to al-Shabaab.

“Western readers should be aware of separate, independent reports by the Somali diaspora news media that Dahabshiil finances terrorism. According to reports by Waagacusub, Kalshaale and Suna Times, Dahabshiil pays one-half million dollars twice a year to al-Shabaab,” Kendall said.

One such report was posted this week in Waagacusub.

“Sometimes these fundraisers expressly mention jihad to donors, sometimes they don’t, and often they don’t have to mention it, because it’s commonly understood that the purposes aren’t truly charitable,” Kendall said.

Dave Gaubatz, a former Air Force intelligence officer, Family Security Matters contributing editor and co-author of “Muslim Mafia”, says a large amount of the money flowing to Africa’s jihadist groups originates in the U.S., some from legally incorporated businesses.

“There are many companies operated by people supportive of the jihad groups,” Gaubatz told WND. “One is the gas station and convenience store. The real money, however, does not come from sales at their store. They buy truck loads of tobacco products from Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. The taxes on tobacco are so low in these states. They then transport (and sell the cigarettes) in states with very high taxes on tobacco, like Michigan and New York.

“The money is clean because they own a legitimate store,” he continued. “The profits in turn go to jihad-supporting groups to distribute and also directly to jihad groups operating in America.”

When asked if some of the money raised through these operations goes to Boko Haram, al-Shabaab or other groups operating in sub-Saharan Africa, Gaubatz answered, “Yes it does.”

Kendall confirms Gaubatz’s allegation of cigarette re-sales: “Hezbollah launders money through West Africa. It’s not just drug money from Latin America, but from fraudulent activities in North America, such as used car dealer schemes and cigarette-smuggling rings.”

Both men’s comments are confirmed by the story of Bassam Kiriaki, a Pawtucket, Rhode Island, accountant who pleaded guilty this year of bringing $1.2 million of cigarettes to Rhode Island from Virginia.

“Kiriaki admitted to the court that he made false representations to law enforcement and created a false tax document in order to conceal the conspiracy,” The Providence Journal reported. “According to court records, on March 30 the Virginia State Police stopped an alleged co-conspirator and seized $30,000 from his vehicle.

“After the stop and seizure, the FBI intercepted calls made by Kiriaki during which he agreed to call Virginia State Police and to tell them that the money was to buy merchandise for a new store in Virginia, Bad Boys Tobacco Stop, Inc.,” the Journal report said.

Kiriaki’s conviction is the latest in a series of arrests for illegal cigarette trafficking.

Yahoo News reported in March of this year 56 percent of the cigarettes sold in New York City were brought illegally from out of state sources.

It’s reported that 15 Palestinians and a South Carolina imam were arrested for participating in the New York City cigarette-smuggling operation. In one case, the Palestinian ringleader was also charged with a plot to kill the witnesses in one of the operations.

Florida: 100 years for murderer, prosecutor blames strict Muslim upbringing

Is she saying Palestinian Muslims breed cold-blooded, heartless killers? via Wellington man sentenced to 100 years for murder | www.palmbeachpost.com.

WEST PALM BEACH — A 33-year-old Wellington man on Monday was sentenced to 100 years in prison for fatally shooting a Jupiter man and critically wounding the man’s girlfriend during a 2010 break-in at the duplex they shared.

Looking at Fares Mustafa, who was wearing a blue jail jumpsuit with his arms and legs shackled, Palm Beach County Court Judge Barry Cohen called Mustafa’s decision to shoot Katie Coonrod as she cowered in a closet reprehensible.

“For what?” Cohen asked. “To steal money? Drugs?”

However, he rejected pleas from prosecutors and victims to hand Mustafa two consecutive life terms.

Mindful that a jury in June convicted Mustafa of second-degree murder, not first-degree, pre-meditated murder, for killing 31-year-old John Anderson, Cohen said life sentences weren’t appropriate. Mustafa also was convicted of attempted first-degree murder for shooting Coonrod.

Kenneth Anderson insisted that two life sentences weren’t sufficient punishment for the man who killed his brother, the father of a young girl. “I would prefer death,” he said, adding that he recognized that wasn’t possible.

Too traumatized to talk, Coonrod wrote Cohen a letter, explaining how her life has been unalterably changed since Mustafa broke into the apartment, killed her fiance and shot her three times after she fled into a walk-in closet.

“There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t replay that night over and over again,” she wrote. “When you killed John, you killed a huge part of me. I live the life of a person I don’t even recognize anymore.”

Marcia Scheppler, who lived next door to Coonrod and Anderson, called Mustafa “soul-less.” She and her then-12-year-old daughter, Melanie, were sleeping when a stray bullet crashed through the wall and came to rest in their mattress.

Even though they immediately moved out of the duplex on Allen Street in the Heights of Jupiter, Mustafa robbed them of their ability to feel safe in their own home, both said.

Defense attorney Valerie Masters, who vowed to appeal the conviction, said Mustafa was also a victim of violence. Growing up in a strict Muslim community in New York City, Mustafa was beaten daily by his father, she wrote in court papers. His mother was powerless to intervene because she, too, was the victim of horrific abuse by the man, who became her husband in an arranged marriage typical of their Palestinian homeland.

What community might that be?

When Mustafa’s mother finally escaped by moving Mustafa and some of his four sisters here, he rebelled from his strict upbringing by embracing drugs and alcohol. His three children were taken away from him after one of his children fell off a second-floor balcony when Mustafa’s wife was in a drunken stupor, Masters wrote.

 Plenty of time to reacquaint himself with Islam in the clink.

Tennessee: Sharia creeping into Republican primary, voter fraud too

More on this post via Tennessee Council 4 political justice.

Aljabbary/Mohammed is running in the Republican primary for Tennessee Senate District 21 in Davidson County (Nashville), the seat previously held by Democrat Douglas Henry for over 40 years.   Haslam has more in common with him than he has with our conservative legislators.

Aljabbary’s website says he has “experience in refugee resettlement and welfare laws.”

Haslam’s director of legislation, Leslie Hafner is the business partner of Chamber of Commerce lobbyist David McMahan. Chambers of Commerce like the Nashville and US Chamber support refugee resettlement for the exploitation of ‘serf’ labor from other countries while US citizens line up for work. Haslam also continues to explore expanding access to Medicaid (TennCare) in Tennessee, something else the TN Chamber of Commerce supports.

Aljabbary is a Kurdish Muslim who used to be president of his mosque. He follows the Quran and the Sunna of Mohammed. Memphis Islamic Center’s Sheikh Yasir Qadhi, described by the New York Times as “one of the most influential conservative clerics in American Islam,” says that the Quran “destroys” American capitalism.

Haslam says he is concerned about income inequality and that “Republicans should not deny evidence that wealth is being spread unevenly or write off such concerns as Democratic propaganda.”

Aljabbary was an original supporter of the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC).

Haslam and Dept. of Safety Commissioner Gibbons supported the formation of AMAC.

Activists from Aljabbrary’s mosque have their offices in the building owned by amnesty supporting organization, Conexion Americas.

Haslam is working toreelect pro-amnesty, our supposedly conservative senator, Lamar Alexander.

Aljabbary’s Quran tells Muslims not to take non-Muslims for their patrons or protectors. The former president of the Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Society of North America says this means that “It is the duty of Muslims to patronize Muslims.” It probably also means that Muslims in Aljabbary’s district will vote in the Republican primary for the first time.

Haslam also supports crossover voting; he admits it helped him get elected also.

Aljabbary voted Democrat in the past. He has voted Republican only one time. State Executive Committee (SEC) member Robert Duvall had to vouch for Aljabbary’s Republican credentials so he could be a Republican candidate. Robert Duvall is seeking reelection to his SEC seat in Aljabbary’s district. Political trade?

Seem like Haslam has more in common with him than with our real conservative legislators.

Muslim voter fraud in Minnesota too, Dems this time.

Boston Bomber friend who disposed of evidence convicted of obstruction

via Tsarnaev friend convicted of obstructing bombings probe – CNN.com.

A federal jury on Monday found a friend of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev guilty of obstructing the investigation into the 2013 attack.

The jury found Azamat Tazhayakov guilty of obstructing justice and conspiring to obstruct justice, in connection with the removal of a backpack with potential evidence from Tsarnaev’s dorm room after the bombings.

Jurors indicated in a verdict questionnaire that they didn’t believe a separate allegation — involving the removal of a laptop computer from the same dorm room — amounted to obstruction or conspiracy.

Sentencing for Tazhayakov, who could get up to 25 years in prison, is scheduled for October. The verdict came in the first trial related to the April 15, 2013, bombings that killed three people and injured more than 200 others.

Tazhayakov’s mother wept loudly in court when the verdict was read. Tazhayakov spoke briefly to his parents before he was escorted out of the courtroom.

Prosecutors accused Tazhayakov and his roommate, fellow Kazakh national Dias Kadyrbayev, of trying to protect Tsarnaev three days after the bombings by removing a backpack and a laptop from Tsarnaev’s dorm room at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, which Tazhayakov also attended.

Prosecutors alleged that Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov took the laptop to their apartment, and that Kadyrbayev, with Tazhayakov’s knowledge, tossed the backpack in a trash bin. Authorities eventually found the backpack — containing Vaseline, a thumb drive and fireworks — in a landfill.

Kadyrbayev is awaiting trial on the same charges and has pleaded not guilty. Another friend, Robel Phillipos, pleaded not guilty to making false statements. None of Tsarnaev’s friends is accused in the bomb plot itself.

Prosecutors told jurors Tazhayakov knew the identity of the suspected bombers — Tsarnaev and his older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev — before the public found out, allegedly texting Kadyrbayev, “i think they got his brother,” hours before the public knew their names or their relationship to one another. [PS: The FBI knew the Boston bombing suspect too]

The friends recognized the Tsarnaev brothers after authorities released video and still photos asking for the public’s helping finding the two men, prosecutors said.

Kadyrbayev told his friends that he believed Dzhokhar Tsarnaev “used the Vaseline ‘to make bombs,’ or words to that effect,” an indictment against him reads.

The government said Tsarnaev texted Kadyrbayev after the bombings and told him he could go to his dorm room and take what he wanted. Kadyrbayev showed that text to Tazhayakov, the government alleged.

Authorities alleged that the friends picked up the backpack and the laptop from Tsarnaev’s dorm room on April 18, 2013, shortly before Tsarnaev was taken into custody.

The FBI interviewed the friends as part of the bombing investigation, and lawyers for Tazhayakov said he did everything he could to help the probe when he spoke with investigators. Based on that information, authorities found Tsarnaev’s backpack in the landfill, his attorneys said.

Daniel Antonino, one of the jurors in Tazhayakov’s case, said the panel found him guilty of obstruction because “the backpack was simply taken and discarded like they were getting rid of evidence.”

Obama sending $47M in “humanitarian aid” to border…of Gaza Strip

Not to the Arizona or Texas borders to deal with Obama’s well-planned and well-funded importation of illegal aliens, but to the Muslim-terrorist Hamas-controlled Gaza strip. Taxation for Islamization.

via US to send $47M in humanitarian aid to Gaza Strip | Fox News. h/t BNI

The U.S. is sending $47 million in humanitarian aid to the besieged Gaza Strip to help tens of thousands of Palestinians there who have been forced from their homes since war broke out two weeks ago.

A State Department breakdown of the aid that was released Monday said nearly a third of the money — $15 million — will go to the United Nations’ refugee mission in Gaza.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was expected to discuss the aid with U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in a meeting late Monday in Cairo.

Kerry arrived in the Egyptian capital only hours earlier in a U.S. push to help broker a truce between Israel and the militant group Hamas that controls Gaza.

 

Report reveals ‘aggressive Islamist agenda’ in Birmingham (UK) schools

Islamist meaning Muslim and the imposition of sharia in England’s public schools. via Leaked report reveals ‘aggressive Islamist agenda’ in Birmingham schools | UK news | The Guardian.

A damning report into extremist infiltration of Birmingham schools has uncovered evidence of “coordinated, deliberate and sustained action to introduce an intolerant and aggressive Islamist ethos into some schools in the city”.

The conclusion emerges from a leaked draft of a report, commissioned by the former education secretary Michael Gove and written by Peter Clarke, the former head of the Metropolitan police’s counterterrorism command, which is due to be published in the next 24 hours.

Clarke said there was a “sustained and coordinated agenda to impose upon children in a number of Birmingham schools the segregationist attitudes and practices of a hardline and politicised strain of Sunni Islam“.

The draft, marked as sensitive, added that: “Left unchecked, it would confine schoolchildren within an intolerant, inward-looking monoculture that would severely inhibit their participation in the life of modern Britain”.

That summarizes Islam everywhere, not just Britain.

The uncompromising report may deepen community tensions in England’s second city and provoke a fierce debate on whether Britain has been sufficiently muscular in efforts to expose and uproot Islamism. It will also make uncomfortable reading for Birmingham city council as it accuses local politicians and officials of ignoring evidence of extremism for years, repeatedly failing to support bullied headteachers and putting the need to soothe community tensions ahead of all else.

The report represents an explosive parting gift from Gove to the new education secretary Nicky Morgan in only her second full day in post. Touching on one of Gove’s flagship reforms, Clarke calls for the Department for Education “to review the process by which schools are able to convert to academy status and become multi-academy trusts”.

The former police chief said there were potentially serious problems in some academies raised by the Birmingham “Trojan horse” crisis. The draft states: “In theory, academies are accountable to the secretary of state, but in practice the accountability can almost amount to benign neglect where educational and financial performance seems to indicate everything is fine.”

Clarke’s report is backed up by graphic evidence, including social media exchanges between senior staff, and disagrees with the council’s previously expressed view, saying the offending ideology “manifests itself as the imposition of an aggressively separatist and intolerant agenda incompatible with full participation in a plural secular democracy”.

“Rejecting not only the secular and other religions, but also other strains of Islamic belief, it goes beyond the kind of social conservatism practiced in some faith schools which may be consistent with universal human rights and respectful of other communities. It appears to be a deliberate attempt to convert secular state schools into exclusive faith schools in all but name.”

Clarke said that he neither sought nor found evidence of terrorism, but there was “very clear evidence that young people are being encouraged to accept unquestionably a particular hardline strand of Sunni Islam that raises concerns about their vulnerability to radicalisation in the future”.

“Essentially the ideology revealed by this investigation is an intolerant and politicised form of extreme social conservatism that claims to represent and ultimately seeks to control all Muslims. In its separatist assertions and attempts to subvert normal processes it amounts to what is often described as Islamism.”

Clarke’s investigation gained him access to transcripts of discussions on social media between senior figures at Park View Academy, one of the schools at the heart of the row. Heasserts: “The all-male group discussions include explicit homophobia, highly offensive comments about British service personnel, a stated ambition to increase segregation at the school, disparagement of Muslims in sectors other than their own, scepticism about the truth of reports on the murder of [soldier] Lee Rigby and the Boston bombings, and a constant undercurrent of anti-western, anti-America and anti-Israel sentiment.”

Update on the man who got camera shy before his henchmen came to his rescue. From Causing Fitna, There is no Muslim Brotherhood in the United States……. ummm, CORRECTION:

Mohammad Albadawi, a leader with the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City, as well as a leading organizer for MAS-ICNA conventions nationwide for many years.

Mohammed Albadawi is also registered with the Secretary of State in Missouri as the registered agent for tax exempt status for the Islamic School of Greater Kansas City. If he has anything to do with teaching kids, it should be no wonder we see American born Muslims like Mohamad Sultan suporting HAMAS and the Ikhwan so openly. Mohammed El-Housiny a Viva Palestina organizer also has been both a student and a leader of the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City, so it is not surprising to see him join with George Galloway while taking money to HAMAS. A portion of a recent radio interview with Mohamad Sultan and Mohammed El-Housiny can be heard here, it should also give some insight into their views.

Oxford Imam Calls Burqa/Niqab ‘Archaic Tribal Rag,’ Calls for Ban

via Muslim Educational Centre of Oxford. h/t iowntheworld

Following the landmark ECHR ruling upholding the French and Belgian ban on public face-masking, the UK must now follow suit. Many Muslims have been misled by propaganda from the Wahhabi-Salafi-Deobandi-Tabligh Jamati and Jamati Islami sects that the burqa/niqab is integral to Islam. It is completely untrue.

This archaic tribal rag is pre-Islamic and non-Qur’anic, and ipso facto un-Muslim. Female public anonymity is an imported Saudi-Afghan fad. It should be resisted on compelling theological, social, health, security and gender equality grounds so that Britain’s traditional character and identity is preserved. The UK must oppose this latest salvo from theological fanatics fighting for the hearts and minds of British Muslims.

As integrated British Muslims, we ask HMG to initiate a national debate in Parliament and across the country so that the public is not duped by religious zealots falsely claiming that face-masking is Islamic. If this Trojan shari’ah horse is not routed, we set a dangerous precedent that will imperil Britain’s democracy and liberty. We call upon all thinking Muslims and those of other faiths and none, to join us in getting rid of this non-Qur’anic patriarchal custom.

 

New Jersey: Muslim Suspect Arrested In Seattle Double Murder of Gays

via Suspect In Seattle Double Murder Arrested In West Orange, N.J. « CBS New York.

WEST ORANGE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A suspect in a double homicide in Seattle was behind bars in New Jersey Saturday morning.

Ali Mohammad Brown, 29, was arrested Friday in West Orange, New Jersey, in the 200 block of Mount Pleasant Avenue in West Orange, police said.

Brown is originally from East Orange.

He was booked by the Essex County Prosecutor’s Homicide Task Force in connection with two open murder warrants dating from June 1 in Seattle, and a warrant in a carjacking in Point Pleasant on June 29.

In Seattle, Brown accused of murdering two men – Ahmed Said, 28, and Dwone Anderson-Young, 23 – whom authorities believe Brown found on a personal mobile app.

CBS affiliate KIRO-TV, Seattle, reported that the victims were both gay, and the case was being investigated as a possible hate crime.

The victims had been with friends at a Seattle gay nightclub, when Said said he was going to meet a “friend” outside the club, the station reported. But the group that was with Said said the “friend” looked “unfriendly and out of place,” and one person in Said’s group said he was “creeped out” by the man who has since been identified as Brown, the station reported.

Authorities said Said’s 2001 Mitsubishi Gallant was found abandoned in South Seattle with what KIRO called “an exorbitant amount of blood.” Brown’s palm print and several spent 9mm shell casings that matched those at the crime scene were found in the vehicle, the station reported.

A second man has also been taken into custody in the Seattle murders, but has not been charged, KIRO reported.

Brown also had been wanted in connection with armed robbery and carjacking that took place at a Point Pleasant coffee shop, WCBS 880′s Ginny Kosola reported.

Brown was to be housed at the Essex County Correctional Center and will later be turned over to the U.S. Marshals Service, police said.

 As noted in a prior post, Seattle Muslim using Grindr app to target, murder gays:

sources tell Q13 FOX News that Brown underwent jihadist training in California in April and they believe the two men were attacked simply because their sexual orientation offended what police say are Brown’s radical Muslim beliefs.

Florida: New 9/11 records suggest FBI cover up on Sarasota Saudis

via New 9/11 records offer tantalizing puzzle pieces – Florida – MiamiHerald.com.

By Dan Christensen and Anthony Summers | BrowardBulldog.org

It was Halloween night, 2001. The horrors of 9/11 were still fresh on the the minds of Americans.

At a time when everyone was on edge, the sight of a man disposing documents in a dumpster behind a Bradenton storage facility aroused suspicion. Summoned to the scene, Manatee County sheriff’s deputies confronted the man, who had a Tunisian passport.

According to FBI records, authorities searched the dumpster and found “a self-printed manual on terrorism and Jihad, a map of the inside of an unnamed airport, a rudimentary last will and testament, a weight-to-fuel ratio calculation for a Cessna 172 aircraft, flight training information from the Flight Training Center in Venice [Fla.] and printed maps of Publix shopping centers in Tampa Bay.”

The Flight Training Center is where 9/11 hijack pilot Ziad Jarrah, who was at the controls of United Airlines Flight 93 when it crashed in Shanksville, Pa., took flying lessons.

This intriguing tale and at least one other are contained in a batch of partially redacted documents released this past week as part of ongoing Freedom of Information Act litigation by the online news site BrowardBulldog.org. The suit, filed in 2012, seeks the FBI’s files from a once-secret investigation into a family of Sarasota Saudis who left the country abruptly about two weeks before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, leaving behind clothing, jewelry and cars.

The main figures in the family were Abdulaziz al-Hijji, his wife, Anoud, and her father, Esam Ghazzawi, an advisor to a Saudi prince.

The report of the Bradenton incident is in some way linked to the al-Hijjis’ saga, although precisely how is unclear. The link might be spelled out in one of the many redacted passages. Nor is it clear in the unredacted portions who the man was or whether he was detained. An FBI letter accompanying the documents says the redactions have to do with national security and other exclusions.

The documents — the fourth batch released in response to the BrowardBulldog lawsuit — were located via court-ordered text searches using the names of the al-Hijjis and Ghazzawi. U.S. District Judge William J. Zloch in Fort Lauderdale is currently reviewing more than 80,000 pages of 9/11 records.

This release suggests that the FBI has covered up information that is vitally important to public safety,” said Miami attorney Thomas Julin, who represents BrowardBulldog.org. “It’s startling that after initially denying they had any documents they continue to find new documents as the weeks and months roll by. Each new batch suggests there are many, many more documents.”

“There needs to be a full-scale explanation of what’s going on here,” Julin said.

A second FBI document released last week, dated Feb. 2, 2012, is similarly tantalizing — and similarly murky.

On that day, according to the document, FBI offices in Tampa and Charlotte, N.C., received information from Washington stamped “secret” stating that a “person of interest” in the FBI’s massive 9/11 investigation had returned to the United States.

The person, whose name is redacted, was reported to be “traveling to Texas and LA for business/tourism.” The person apparently told authorities upon entering the country that he could be reached in Charlotte. He provided a telephone number “associated with furniture manufacturers in North Carolina,” the report states.

Details about that were blanked out. But the report also states, “Tampa is notified that a person of interest to Tampa regarding the PENTTBOMB investigation has a valid visa for re-entry into the U.S.” PENTTBOMB is the FBI’s code name for its 9/11 investigation.

Whether this person was ever detained, interviewed or allowed to go about his/her business is unclear in the unredacted passages.

In all, the FBI released 11 pages. They contain statements reiterating that the al-Hijjis had departed the United States in haste shortly before 9/11 and that “further investigation” had “revealed many connections” between them and persons associated with “attacks on 9/11/2001.”

Those statements flatly contradict the FBI’s public statements that agents found no connection between the al-Hijjis and the 9/11 plot.

Yet they dovetail with the account of a counterintelligence source who has said investigators in 2001 found evidence — phone records and photographs of license plates snapped at the entrance to the al-Hijjis’ Sarasota-area neighborhood — that showed Mohamed Atta, other hijackers and former Broward resident and current al-Qaeda fugitive Adnan Shukrijumah had visited the al-Hijji home.

None of that information, or even the fact that an investigation in Sarasota took place, was disclosed by the FBI to Congress’ Joint Inquiry into the attacks or to the 9/11 Commission, according to former Florida Sen. Bob Graham. Graham co-chaired the joint inquiry.

The documents are stamped secret. The portions that were not released are supposed to be kept under wraps until 2039.

The government has asserted the classification is necessary because the censored information pertains to foreign relations or foreign activities, including confidential sources.

“This could be about information considered embarrassing to Saudi Arabia,” said Julin. Fifteen of the 19 suicide hijackers were Saudi nationals.

The report on the man and the dumpster — although the encounter happened on Halloween 2011, the document is dated April 2002 — contains additional information, though the deletions make its full meaning difficult to discern.

It says the Tampa FBI office “has determined that [blank] is an antagonist of the United States of America. [Blank] resides in Jerusalem. [Blank] allegedly has held regular and recurring meetings at his residence to denounce and criticize the United States of America and its policies. [Blank] is allegedly an international businessman with great wealth.

“In November 2001, [blank] visited the United States for the first time. He traveled to Sarasota, Florida, opened a bank account and made initial queries into the purchase of property in south central Florida. [Blank] intends to establish a Muslim compound in Central Florida. [Blank] revealed that [blank] is fearful of [blank] and fears that [blank] intends to begin offensive operations against the United States if he is able to purchase property and establish a Muslim compound in Central Florida.”

Three follow-up lines are blanked out.

The attack happened after a prayer service Monday morning. Mitchell, also known as Mabul Shoatz, accused the 46-year-old mosque member of the theft.

The accused immediately denied it, but to no avail. Mitchell and the mosque’s imam carried the accused down a flight of stairs to the backyard of the mosque, a converted house, where Mitchell also lives, Walker said.

They put the victim’s wrist on a log, and Mitchell “swung at his wrist, cut through his skin, and cut his tendons, but didn’t make it all the way” because the blade was dull, Walker said.

The victim was treated at Mercy Philadelphia Hospital and will require reconstructive surgery.

Mitchell was charged with aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy, and related offenses. Police found the machete during the search.

Two men described as leaders of a Philadelphia mosque were accused of trying to cut off the hand of a suspected thief, whose wrist was sliced so deeply it required hospital treatment, police said on Friday.

The 46-year-old victim said two officials in the mosque accused him of stealing jars of money from the house of worship after morning prayers on Monday.

The officials, described in police reports as the mosque’s imam and amir, dragged the victim to the rear of the mosque, and attempted to chop off his hand with a machete, according to a police statement.

He sustained a severe laceration to his right wrist, and was transported to a nearby hospital by medics.

Officers served a search warrant on Thursday on the mosque, located in a house in the city’s Overbrook section, where they arrested Merv Mitchell, also known as Mabul Shoatz. They recovered a 2-foot-long machete from the scene.

The mosque’s imam, an unidentified 35-year-old male, has not yet been located, police said.

Mitchell was charged with aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy, simple assault, reckless endangerment, and related offenses.

Justice Department Honored Al Qaeda Charity Fundraiser in Buffalo

Khalid Qazi, a man honored by the US Justice Department in Buffalo, has a long history of Islamic extremist activity including raising money for an Al Qaeda charity.

Ilya Feoktistov, APT’s Director of Research said New York District Attorney William Hochul gave the Justice Department’s highest award for community service to Khalid Qazi on June 5. At the ceremony, Hochul described Qazi as a man who “has done so much to break down the barriers between the Muslim community and law enforcement.”

But Feoktistov said, “U.S. Attorney William Hochul should be well-aware of Qazi’s background since his own Justice Department has investigated and prosecuted several of Qazi’s close associates, as well as helped shut down several groups that Qazi had worked with.”

Feoktistov said the APT video shows that Qazi is a founder and Senior Adviser of the Muslim Public Affairs Council of Western New York, a group that Feoktistov says, “attempts to portray itself as the ideal partner for law-enforcement agencies, yet whenever these agencies arrest people on terror-related causes, MPAC criticizes the arrests and accuses these same agencies of Islamophobia.”

Feoktistov said Qazi has raised funds for the Global Relief Foundation, an organization that was shut down shortly after 9/11 for funneling the funds it raised to Al Qaeda’s financial network.

Feoktistov said Qazi was also the director of the Kashmiri American Council (KAC), whose president was arrested and charged by Eric Holder’s Department of Justice with acting as a foreign agent. The KAC was identified by the FBI as an American front group for the Pakistani ISI intelligence agency, which is notorious for supporting Al Qaeda and Taliban terrorists operating in Kashmir. ISI has been accused of assisting the terror group Lashkar-e-Taibah in carrying out the 2009 Mumbai attacks.

The FBI alleged that Dr. Qazi’s KAC had funneled 4 million dollars of ISI money since the mid-1990s. Yet just two months before the FBI exposed Qazi’s organization as an ISI front, William Hochul held a press conference with Qazi to tell the community that he and Qazi “have a very long tradition of working here in Western New York together and we will continue that.”

Before he founded the Western New York chapter of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Qazi was the Executive Director of the American Muslim Council. The American Muslim Council no longer functions, its leader and founder, Abdulrahman Alamoudi, was arrested on terrorism charges in 2003 and is now serving a 23 year prison sentence.

At his trial, Federal prosecutors accused Alamoudi of being the most important Al Qaeda fundraiser in America. Feoktistov said, “Yet just like Dr. Qazi now, before his arrest, Alamoudi was respected in the highest reaches of society and government, including close relationships with both Presidents Bush and Clinton. Are Dr. Qazi and MPAC being similarly mistaken for moderates?”

APT President, Dr. Charles Jacobs said, “District Attorney William Hochul and the Department of Justice should end all collaborative relationships with Khalid Qazi and MPAC, rescind all DoJ and FBI awards to Qazi, and institute guidelines for vetting interfaith community partners for extremist ties going forward.”
